ii. Constant Speed. DATA: Engine 4 stroke. AIM: The experiment is conducted to  Determine the actual valve timing for a 4-stroke diesel engine and hence draw the diagram. Single Cylinder. iv. All the valves operated at some degree on either side in terms of crank angles from dead centre position.Institute Of Aeronautical Engineering VALVE TIMING DIAGRAM VALVE TIMING DIAGRAM i. K.SRAVANTHI . Water Cooled. 5 BHP 1500rpm. THEORY: In a four stroke engine.SANGEETHA . The valves open slightly earlier and close after that respective dead centre position. iii. SRI KRISHNAN 2 . The ignition also causes prior to full compression and piston reaches the dead centre position. opening and closing of valves and fuel injection do not takes place exactly at the end of dead centre positions.
